With your help and generosity, you will be contributing in helping the ACLT to continue their excellent work in educating and raising awareness about the importance of recruiting potential Bone Marrow, Blood Donors and Organs Donors onto the Registers amongst the Black, Mixed Race and Ethnic Minority communities, as it is this group that is severely under-represented (less than 1%) on these registers. If you are not aware, your tissue and blood type is related to your ethnic origin.

Gold Challenge has introduced a Team League so participants can see how they fair alongside other Gold Challenger's in terms of funds raised so far
I am extremely proud to announce that both ACLT Gold Challenge Teams ‘UKBA Olympians' and ‘Breaking Boundaries' are representing the ACLT in great style as we are both make the Top 10 Highest Fundraisers (including gift aid) of Teams taking on the Gold Challenge.
UKBA Olympians are currently 6th and we Breaking Boundaries are just behind them in 8th place. We are on a mission to raise HUGE funds for ACLT & need Your Help in making us reach our 1st fundraising target of £1,000 by 31st Dec 2011...
I would like to sincerely Thank all those that have kindly sponsored my team 'Breaking Boundaries'. We have now raised £615.43 to help ACLT Charity continue their life saving work....
The proof is in the pudding that HARD WORK Does Indeed PAY OFF!!! My team Breaking Boundaries are 8th highest Team fundraisers taking part in The Gold Challenge. A great accomplishment.
It's fair to say that's pretty good going and if we keep up the AMAZING WORK, both teams could be rewarded by having team members being the first people EVER to race 100m at the Olympic Park Stadium in April 2012 as one of the top 50 fundraisers. Here's the link guys to the Gold Challenge Team League Table https://www.goldchallenge.org/gc/league.php?team=Breaking%20Boundaries
